Manfrotto Element MII tripods


Manfrotto has introduced the Element MII range of tripods for hobbyist and aspiring photographers who use compact cameras, CSCs, DSLRs, and smartphones to capture photos while travelling. 

Element MII stands for 'Made In Italy' and 'Mark 2' as it's the evolution of the popular Element Big range featuring new features and upgrades with the main selling point being how lightweight and compact the tripods are with both the carbon fibre and aluminium versions reaching up to 160cm and folding down to 42.5cm. As for weight, the aluminium version weighs 1.55kg while the carbon fibre models weigh just 1.35kg and both support a payload of 8kg, while the monopods hold a 15kg load. 

The aluminium ball head features a dual-lock design with a large primary knob for controlling the ball’s movement and a smaller secondary knob for engaging the 360° independent pan. The head comes with an included techno polymer 200PL-PRO Light plate that's compatible with Arca-type and Manfrotto RC2 head attachments.

Other features include new ergonomic twist locks and quick leg angle switching. Plus, each tripod has a vibrant, graphical design and comes with a padded bag for storage and transport. 

The collection consists of 4 products:  Element MII tripods, Element MII Mobile, Element MII Mobile BT and Element MII Monopods.
